Well we did it! We raised over $7100 for the Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival. We finished in 3rd place for fundraising! We also snagged second place for best name at the event. Last night, I had the opportunity to receive an award on behalf of my team for fundraising.
The festival was truly a powerful event that left me feeling a rush of adrenaline afterwards. I was also asked to speak at the event and share my personal story with cancer, along with the success of fundraising. We were featured in local medias including WCAX Channel 3 News, WPTZ Channel 5 News and Burlington Free Press (click the links to see the story). I felt so honored to be asked to speak on behalf of the LCDBF at the time.
Being on the water that day surrounded by family and friends willing to support me was a blessing and amazing feeling. The rush of energy that comes from an event like this continues on days and months past it. I am really looking forward to being able to organize and participate again next year. Keep a look out for Soaring On, were doing great things!
